Coyote Trickster Tales
This summer we are inspired by the rich Native American tales of Coyote. Children (grades 2-5) will paint and draw, sing, dance, play drums, have playtime, listen to storytellers, learn magic tricks, and have a tasty lunch.
High School counselors receive valuable Leadership Training. Adults join the fun as volunteers. Contact Shari Young, Associate Rector and Camp Director: email@example.com
Don't Forget to send in your
Capital Campaign Pledge!
Honoring our Legacy Campaign
The Honoring Our Legacy Campaign will end in just three weeks. Several people, amazed that over
$1 million has been raised already, asked, "What difference could my pledge make?" Your pledge makes all the difference. Your pledge stands between the Church and 100% participation. Your pledge stands between the present tally and the goal of $1.6 million. Fifty pledges at $6,000 becomes $300,000. One hundred pledges of $2,000 is $200,000. Your pledge is everything.
Anasazi celebrates Cinco de Mayo! We will begin with some social time at 11am. Lunch will be served at noon. The 11:30am program will consist of brief comments by Midge Moore on the history and significance of the Mexican holiday.
Please join in for some fun and a Mexican Feast! Everyone is welcome. $5 lunch donation.

after the 10am service
Beginning May 26th, Rob Gieselmann will lead a three-week discussion on death, following the 10am service each Sunday. Yes, death. Rob is convinced that this universal experience is the least-talked-about part of our spiritual journeys, yet the most common.
May 26 - Rob will read a passage from his own book about his wife's, Laura's, death, discuss his experiences of the deaths of others, and then invite discussion. You can purchase Rob's book at coffee hour this Sunday for $6.
June 2 - Rob will lead a discussion on heaven, and include a little physics and testimonials of near-death experiences.
June 9 - Rob will talk about planning for your own death, and you will have the opportunity to plan your own funeral.
